    I have a Winchester Model 1906. It was purchased by my great uncle with money made from building the Panama Canal. It was given to my grandfather who gave it to me some time ago.

    Specs:

    Winchester Model 1906
    Slide action
    Chambered for 22 Short
    Serial 15,xxx puts it as a first year manufacture
    All original
    I'd grade it as a good, maybe a very good
    There is a fair amount of bluing left with some rust "staining". No pits of deep rust
    Wood is original, not refurbished and in very good condition
    Fully functional (Fun as hell to shoot CB's though it)
    Tool marks on left side of action. These are the only marks on the gun

    I've done research online but I'm curious as to what it would be worth.

    Since the stock has no been messed with, I would personally say $800-$850.
    If the blueing was better and if there were no dings in the metal I would have said $1100.
    How is the bore?

    The bore is excellent. Other than it sitting in a closet for 50+ years and popping squirrels in the 20's, it's largely untouched.

    Looks kind of dry. Lube it up and it ought to shoot shorts and CBs roughly forever. Mr Browning and the guys at Winchester knew their stuff.
